READ FAQ BEFORE ASK

(i will not answer FAQ questions anymore. I just delete your notification.) CURSE YOU! 

Also READ COMMENTS BEFORE ASK

(most problems answered there too. I really have no time to support this app anymore) Rage 




Warning: No more updates. Sweating a little... 

This app stays as it is now. Why? Because Flash is essentially dead now. Browsers stop to support it etc. I might be create a HTML5 version of this app IF deviantART let us upload web apps in the future (as Newgrounds does). Until then this stays without any further improvements or updates. Thank you for all your comments and support I got for this app. It was a pleasure. I will respond and help as I can. This will not change. It changed :D I just do not fix anything in the app, also I do not add any new features after this.

Warning 2.0: 

With the new deviantart design called Eclipse this app will die along with the whole custom background code community for sure.
 
This little app generate Custom Box Background code after you provide an image url to it. This is the easiest way to get HTML code that makes your profile look awesome.

Tutorial video: youtu.be/WNnUhSB6QPQ

You can check preview after you generated code. Pressing CTRL+C (or CMD+C if you are Mac user) button will automatically copy the code for you, so you can paste it in the custom box.


Commissions are not open for code! (I edited this part so it tells "not" for everything :D Years ago it wasn't "not" :D)


For some reason you can't use this app? I will not send you the the code for 30 points. Do not check the commissions out on my profile pages's right side. I will not accept your commission if you provide me all the info I need and you are a Core user.
 (I stopped doing that too :| (Blank Stare) )

Mobile Users and people without Flash player (This is dead too)


Here is the mobile version for you: customboxgenerator.nikhazy-diz…

You can add it to home screen too, as this is a mobile web app.
(I lost my server once, couldn't recover it and too much time to remake it Waaaah! )

You do not have to buy to use it BUT you can buy to support me => (not anymore. Thank you for all the support)


Do you wanted to support me? On the right there was a small custom box background image pack (25 images in a zip file). In the past you clicked the Purchase button on the right. Want preview? Check this out: sta.sh/0qtpybyf6ej But consider this: I do not support this app anymore, so I do not really expect you to support me. :) (Smile)
(i no longer accept your points for an app and deviantArt feature that is dead)

FAQ


  • It isn't look good with featured images, ID, donation etc.  Yeah. Because this works best with custom box widget. In any other cases there will be bugs like hidden content, spaces between content and top of widgets etc. There are workarounds for these but they will be still far from perfect.


  • How to get Image URL?: www.wikihow.com/Get-the-URL-fo…


  • I am not a Core user. Will it work for me? Nope. This works only for Core users.

  • Background image doesn't repeat This isn't an error. This is how it is. You must use a wide and tall image to cover all the background. (Update: As from v1.7.4 it is possible to repeat image vertically.) This is not an officially supported feature, so it is far from perfect.


  • Background image doesn't fill the box horizontally It is because you use a too small image. To understand this better try to resize the window and see how the layout changes, you will see eventually it will fill it. The minimum recommended width for the image to use is 1000px. That fills the background even on bigger screens. There are no other way for this. 

  • Does this work at Groups? Not perfectly. At groups the image will push the content down. So you can use small image as header or something, but not as background.

  • I am an Internet Explorer user. I don't have "copy image url" at right click. What to do? First of all: Don't be an Internet Explorer user. It is bad for your and your computer's health. But if you want to continue to be one, you should write a comment with an URL to the page that contains the image you want to use and I will give you the image URL.
    (Update: As from v1.8.0 it is possible get IMG URL in the app itself if the image is on deviantART or sta.sh. If you still have problems comment)

  • It hides donation button. What to do? Put several line breaks (press lot of enters in the text) before the last tag so the button is "pushed downwards". At donation polls it is a good idea to use low but wide image, so it only hides the donation amount.


  • How do I replace the hidden featured image? You put the image's :thumbXYZ: code in the text OR you use the <img src="FEATURED IMAGE URL" width="400" />  HTML tag also in the text. Where the a "width" parameter will change the width of the image and you should set it so you are happy with the result (thank you for kissingcyanide for pointing this out). Without the width parameter the image can be too big and appear strangely hidden on the sides.

  • There is a space on top of featured image widget: Set the view to "Normal view". There will be still a space at the top. But this is as close as you get. Remember the first FAQ.

Ok, so!
This is amazing!
It helps me soooo much! If it wasn't for this I would have not been able to make my page pretty!
It would be nice if you could make it look a little prettier, but hey! Thats just me. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/d/d…" width="21" height="15" alt=":dummy:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="574" title="I am a dummy!"/>
Another thing is that it would be cool if you could add some of those box things. nvn
You're really good at this stuff!
Thank you so much you helped so many people. :,3

I really like this, it helps me with my groups but i dont like how if you mess up, whatever you wrote, deletes! Please fix that, but I really like this overall, and you should be able to use deviations like textures for the boxes.

Overall:

Vision: The generator is simple but creates lovely results!

Originality: The only one i have seen but there could be more

Technique: Amazing, the coding works quite well!

Impact: Lets just say: How??? I love this! I use it for my groups and hopefully if i get a premium membership i will use this!

Yeah, because you are a simple member. Only premium members can use it.
gir-fanatic-03's avatar
well i used to be a member on my older account but it still didnt work, maybe it hates me
NAkos's avatar
It is for custom boxes. It works as a background there. At any other widgets it hides the actual content behind the image.

I love this. It helped me so much. I will use this more often now since I found out about it. I love it! How did you get all the right things? Was it hard? I think you might have earned another favorite on your art or resource! It is amazing. just think of it. I was A noob before this was invented. I think I might need to tell my page viewers about this. Thanks for making this amazing resource for us to work with! Hope this was helpful. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> Oh and keep up the great work! I love it!
NAkos's avatar
Well this was a long developement. As I found new codes and ideas I built it in as soon as I figured out how it works and how it fits in the app. It isn't hard but time consumeing.

This simple resource is one of the most recommended custom box resources that I refer people to. An easy to use generator that really makes everyone able to customize their profile pages without confusing code. The version updates are pretty impressive to see how this small app has evolved.

Many people ask me how to put a bg into their custom boxes and rather than explain "floaty-boat" and how to structure the content inside of the box, this generator does all of that in a user friendly interface.

People can still learn how to do the code themselves, but this is definitely a great starting point and a handy tool to make it all that much faster. Especially if you combine this with `CypherVisor's custom box resources, you can quickly have a brilliant page layout.

Thank you.  I felt it deserved an actual critique since the two before utilized filler text instead of writing up a longer one.  I never find trouble filling them...

I guess you earned a fave :3
So this shows how new Premium Members on how to do it <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
I hope this gets famous sometime.

It breaks my heart that Eclipse is making users like myself and many others unable to customize our pages with this amazing tool..
It is so sad that all those hours coding and figuring out what looked best for my profile is all wasted in the end. Kermit Disapproves - Emote
